Hi all

I have been reading some posts regarding the problems associated the utility yplusRAS.

Some posts say that it actually calculates ystar.

Also that it does not work for low Reynolds number turbulence models

I am using OpenFOAM 2.1. Does this mean I need to rewrite the the yplusRAS utility? If so how ?
